After limping around in pain :pinch: for the better part of 4 months, my co-workers, family and friends demanded that I get to the Dr. to figure out what was wrong with my left ankle. X-rays negative. Bloodwork - positive for high levels of uric acid. I am starting a 7 day series of prednisone tonight for the pain and swelling, but does anyone have a sure-fire way to prevent future attacks? I have heard and read that eating cherries or drinking real cherry juice are very helpful. :unsure: I have also been told that reducing my red meat, pork and alcohol consumption would help, but that's probably not going to happen :evil: , so what's the next best home remedy?
